FamilyHistoryLive Hispanic Online Conference

I've been excited to see so many people vote on which classes they would like to see presented online via FamilyHistoryLive.com. I have also received several comments to my last post making some recommendations. I might suggest that if the Spanish translation on http://www.familyhistorylive.com needs work that you contact them through their site. I currently don't have any affiliation with the company, but was approached by Jonathan Walker, who does weekly online classes through the site, to do a Hispanic conference/fair.

So far we have seen interest in a variety of topics for the Saturday, January 12th conference, which might suggest that more conferences may be needed. The top four recommendations are the following:
  • Spanish Emigration Records (in Spanish...just having problems right now getting accents and tildes to work)
  • El Censo-guia de Archivos
  • Nuevos Recursos del Internet
  • FamilySearch Indexing en Espanol
I might also recommend that a class on the Family History Library Catalog be taught, which was recommended by a user via the comments on the last post. I have only offered 8 different topics, which means this is not a final schedule, however, we will need to begin finalizing the 4 classes by about mid December so we can make final preparations of the classes. Also, keep in mind that we are thinking that 2 classes will be taught at the same time.

I'll be preparing a new poll over the next few days, but anyone can still make class recommendations via the comments option on this blog post, vote on the next poll, or click here to send me an email.

There is a newer translation for the Family History Live Online, page in spanish in the process. The lastest version is being reviewed, and once that is done, it will be put online.
